The game is afoot in the Oxfordshire village of Tetsworth after a police search helicopter found an unmissable ‘crop circle’.
This mysterious, otherworldly design appears vaguely similar to the characters from our alphabet that we use to make words.
It’s almost like they are trying to call out to a ‘Sue’ or at a push ‘Suex’… Whatever that might mean.
National Police Air Service Benson put a tweet out yesterday morning just before 9am and have launched the #FindSue campaign, reports the Oxford Mail.

Kent lifesavers from RNLI Walmer were quick on the scene, sharing their maritime rescue knowledge and explaining that it might be prudent to extend the search beneath the sea to explain the source of the crop circle.
You’ve got to give them credit for the lateral thinking and for not dismissing a second avenue of investigation.
Well.. we know ‘Suex’ to be an underwater scooter so maybe we must look underground for the clue? #wedontdoland

Twitter user Karz opened a can of worms with the following tweet:
Those aliens are getting ever more sophisticated!

This raises the spectre that aliens could be communicating to us directly. Especially following Whatsapp spookily crashing across Europe earlier today.
The Twitter-based investigation offers up some further ideas as to what the mysterious crop circle could mean:
You sure it's not an advert for a local law firm?

It is a message to take legal action against someone.

Nobody can be certain for the meaning behind the crop circles at this point.
The investigation continues, but rest assured the truth is out there…
